AMERICA HELD CAPTIVE — Part 3 — How to recognize your slavery when you see it.

The deep state infiltration into all governments is much deeper than you can imagine. Their globalist agenda is to create a one-world government. To do this they must destroy Americana.

Attorneys always have a duty to attorn your allegiance over to their unseen masters. Details are in my essay on Attorneys.

Attorneys have only two categories to put you. Omnes hominess aut liberi sunt aut servi. All men are freemen or slaves.

Don’t claim to live in a free country if you have never seen freedom.

Who owns you?

There was a time when Americans knew what slavery was.

The British colonialists living in the 13 British Colonies were subject to British law here in the British Empire.  They considered themselves slaves even though there was no income tax.  In 1773, when the tax on tea got to 17%, they rebelled and threw shipments of tea into Boston Harbor.

When the Declaration of Independence was written, They considered forced obedience to un-Biblical laws to be slavery. The Declaration of Independence uses the terms “unwarranted jurisdiction” and “pretended legislation”.

Example 1: An essay by Thomas Paine in a tabloid printed by the Pennsylvania Journal five months after the Declaration of Independence.

Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth? Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.” — December 23, 1776, The American Crisis by Thomas Paine

Example 2:  Patrick Henry’s famous we-must-fight speech March 23, 1775

Is life so sweet or peace so dear as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? … I know not what course others may take, but as for me give me liberty or give me death.”

Example 3: Samuel Adams (who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, cousin of President John Adams, and an activist at the Boston Tea Party) speech at the State House of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (1 August 1776):

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Example 4: Benjamin Franklin, at the Constitutional Convention, (quoted in John Adams notes for June 2, 1787) warned us about rulers’ lust for power:

“… as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever …”

Enslaved forever? Does your government forever enslave you?  If you are a taxpayer, then the answer is yes.  Each taxpayer owes $288,000 as their fair share of the national debt.  And that is not counting nearly $2 million dollars per taxpayer in other debts of federal, state and local governments.  Congress keeps borrowing money to give you what you want.  Your Congressman represents you.  Unfortunately, the borrower is a servant to the lender.  When the U.S. defaults on the foreign bond payments, borrowers will seize the collateral.  Your labor is the collateral.  You and your children are slaves forever.

These rebels would later be the founders of the United States Government. They wrote a Constitution to restrict their new government  — to secure the blessings of liberty — not slavery.

Have you reverted to this slavery?  Are you bound to laws in all cases whatsoever as Thomas Paine mentioned?  Does government now claim a right to un apportioned direct taxation contrary to the Constitution ?

Slavery still exists in America.  Not recognizing your captivity has serious consequences.  You will be tricked into waiving more rights by legalities that you don’t understand.  Thereafter you will not have any rights, because once a slave, always a slave.

Don’t claim to live in a free country if you have never seen freedom.

“If you wish to keep slaves, you must have all kinds of guards. The cheapest way to have guards is to have the slaves pay taxes to finance their own guards. To fool the slaves, you tell them that they are not slaves and that they have Freedom. You tell them they need Law and Order to protect them against bad slaves. Then you tell them to elect a Government. Give them Freedom to vote and they will vote for their own guards and pay their salary. They will then believe they are Free persons. Then give them money to earn, count and spend and they will be too busy to notice the slavery they are in.”
— Alexander Warbucks, September 6, 1978, How I manage my slaves


Every law dictionary tells you that abandonment of rights has no legal remedy.

Once a slave, always a slave. You forfeit your rights by not protesting.


Today’s ignorance of slavery is just as it was in 1809 when Goethe told us “there are none so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.”

It is just as it was 2000 years ago when Christ told the Jewish leaders that the truth could set them free.  They were so deceived that they told Jesus they were never enslaved in John 8:33.  They lived under the martial law of the brutal Roman Empire (just like you), they paid their tribute to Caesar (just like you), they were prohibited from holding trials in their own courts (just like you), they were forced to contribute to the Roman corban welfare system (just like you), and they thought they were free (just like you).  They missed the opportunity to learn how the truth could set them free.  How about you?

It is just as it was depicted in the movie The Matrix.  You are actually confined (by millions of regulations) in an artificial cocoon while your life’s energy (taxed wages) is being sucked out of you to fund a global machine that presents a false image of real life — while reality outside of the artificial image is quite harsh.  It is time to touch the looking-glass (representation of your real self), absorb the artificial self at your inner being, unplug your electrodes1, and flush yourself out of their system.


Today’s slavery has many comparisons to the Roman occupation of Biblical times.  The Roman law, to which you surrendered2, has a maxim of law:
Omnes hominess aut liberi sunt aut servi.  All men are freemen or slaves.  The courts that you are dragged into have no other choices — you are either free or slave. Which box are you in?

Maxim of Law in Black's Law Dictionary, First Edition
Maxim of Law in Black’s Law Dictionary, First Edition

So how do you recognize which category the courts put you into?

If you are dominated, then you are a slave.  Before you can understand how you were tricked out of your God-given free-will, you need to know the basics.  It was your choice to let others impose their will on you.  Every Law Dictionary will tell you “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery” Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt.  More information is in my Book The Citizen Cannot Complain.

In a general sense you are a slave to whom you obey according to Romans 6:16.

Before we take a closer look at different forms of slavery, I want to remind you what freedom looks like.


Never confuse a right with a government granted privilege.  Government granted privileges are often called “rights”, even by courts, which only leads to further enslavement.

Government must protect you from all known methods of compulsion by protecting your rights and preserving them inviolate. These are rights that the government CANNOT touch.

Rights include the right to be free from all known methods of compulsion.  Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law, Book 1 “Rights of Persons” (First Edition, Claredon Press, Oxford, 1769) explains our rights, as they existed in the received law-of-the-land in the American colonies when the 13 original states wrote their constitutions.

The rights themselves, thus defined by these several statutes, consist in a number of private immunities, which will appear, from what has been premised, to be indeed no other, than either that residuum of natural liberty, which is not required by the laws of society to be sacrificed to public convenience; or else those civil privileges, which society hath engaged to provide, in lieu of the natural liberties so given up by individuals. These, therefore, were formerly, either by inheritance or purchase, the rights of all mankind; but, in most other countries of the world being now more or less debased and destroyed, they at present may be said to remain, in a peculiar and emphatical manner, the rights of the people of England. And these may be reduced to three principal or primary articles; the right of personal security, the right of personal liberty, and the right of private property: because, as there is no other known method of compulsion, or of abridging man’s natural free will, but by an infringement or diminution of one or other of these important rights, the preservation of these, inviolate, may justly be said to include the preservation of our civil immunities in their largest and most extensive sense.

The medieval system of corvee labor requires some forced labor as a tax payment to the lord of the manor.

A right cannot be taxed.  But those who waive their right to earn wages can be taxed for selling “their own” labor.  You sold government owned labor to your employer.  You provided to your employer a government wage-authorization number, and the employer gave you your government living allowance.

The American Revolution set us free from this system.  And the Supreme Court protected you.  But you returned to this vomit.

The U.S. Supreme Court in Pollock v. Farmers Loan (157 US 429, 158 U.S. 601) found that the income tax act of 1894

… being a direct tax within the meaning of the Constitution, and, therefore unconstitutional and void because not apportioned according to representation…”

And NO, the 16th Amendment did not change this. The US Supreme Court in Stanton v. Baltic Mining Co., 240 US 103 (1915) determined that “… the 16th amendment conferred no new powers of taxation.“  (More…)

By the way, slaves under Pharaoh had a 20% income tax during a time of national emergency (Genesis 47:26).  The other 80% was their living allowance.  How does this compare to your take-home allowance?
Pay Pharaoh his tale of bricks.


This is nothing new.  The Hebrew word mac (Strong’s Concordance H4522) is used 23 times in the Old Testament referring to a system of forced labor as a tax to a feudal lord, a king, or a foreign ruler.  Moses lived in such a system until the Passover.  If you want to see how history repeats itself, try to find the Book of Jasher and read chapter 65, verses 19-34.  The Book of Jasher is mentioned in the Bible (in Joshua 10:13 and Second Samuel 1:18).

U.S. common law comes from English law.

A war criminal, taken in a just war, who is tried and convicted of war crimes and sentenced to death can be sold.  The execution of the convict can be delayed by his custodian.

John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government, 1690:

“CHAP. IV. Of Slavery.

Sec. 22. THE natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of nature for his rule. The liberty of man, in society, is to be under no other legislative power, but that established, by consent, in the commonwealth; nor under the dominion of any will, or restraint of any law, but what that legislative shall enact, according to the trust put in it. … but freedom of men under government is, to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by the legislative power erected in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, where the rule prescribes not; and not to be subject to the inconstant, uncertain, unknown, arbitrary will of another man: as freedom of nature is, to be under no other restraint but the law of nature.

Sec. 23. This freedom from absolute, arbitrary power, is so necessary to, and closely joined with a man’s preservation, that he cannot part with it, but by what forfeits his preservation and life together: for a man, not having the power of his own life, cannot, by compact, or his own consent, enslave himself to any one, nor put himself under the absolute, arbitrary power of another, to take away his life, when he pleases. No body can give more power than he has himself; and he that cannot take away his own life, cannot give another power over it. Indeed, having by his fault forfeited his own life, by some act that deserves death; he, to whom he has forfeited it, may (when he has him in his power) delay to take it, and make use of him to his own service, and he does him no injury by it: for, whenever he finds the hardship of his slavery outweigh the value of his life, it is in his power, by resisting the will of his master, to draw on himself the death he desires.

Sec. 24. This is the perfect condition of slavery, which is nothing else, but the state of war continued, between a lawful conqueror and a captive: for, if once compact enter between them, and make an agreement for a limited power on the one side, and obedience on the other, the state of war and slavery ceases, as long as the compact endures: for, as has been said, no man can, by agreement, pass over to another that which he hath not in himself, a power over his own life.

I confess, we find among the Jews, as well as other nations, that men did sell themselves; but, it is plain, this was only to drudgery, not to slavery: for, it is evident, the person sold was not under an absolute, arbitrary, despotical power: for the master could not have power to kill him, at any time, whom, at a certain time, he was obliged to let go free out of his service; and the master of such a servant was so far from having an arbitrary power over his life, that he could not, at pleasure, so much as maim him, but the loss of an eye, or tooth, set him free, Exod. xxi.”

The U.S. Supreme Court in U.S. v. Kozminski, 487 U.S. 931, has confirmed that it is perfectly lawful to hold mentally handicapped men to unpaid labor.  Because it is voluntary.  — Well guess what.  You volunteered when you applied to your guardian to become a ward.

The borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7

Your representatives represent you4.  They borrowed money on your behalf, and in your name, to give you what you wanted.  You wanted to force your neighbors to provide for your welfare benefits and Social Security benefits.

You are not making Social Security payments into a trust fund.  Social Security payments (FICA) only go to pay some of the interest on the debt.  There is no trust fund with your name on it.  You coveted your neighbors’ wealth, thereby violating the tenth commandment.  You are a surety for the national debt.  Pay up.

The United States cannot pay their debts.  Your labor is collateral for the National Debt. Obama doubled the National Debt. China is our largest creditor. All those empty cities in China are there for a reason.  The labor camps are ready.

See the Army Field Manual FM-3-39.  (AND no it is not for prisoner camps during foreign wars.  Notice that Social Security Numbers are used to process people into the camp.  And you can also search for their term “reeducation”).

DEBT SLAVERY– “The full faith and credit of the United States”

The borrower is slave to the lender.  Proverbs 22:7

Ever since we started the Social Security program in the mid 1930’s we keep raising the debt limit to overspend on your behalf and in your name. We borrow by issuing Treasury bonds with “the full faith and credit of the United States”. This means our spending money is borrowed from you and your children, who must repay. Our assets and our forced labor are the collateral for the debt. Communist China is our largest creditor. What could possibly go wrong?


Was there race-based slavery in the United States?  In the 1840 U.S. Census, 29% of the free blacks owned slaves.  Never have more than 1% of the free whites owned slaves.

When ruling on the Amistad case, seven of the nine the Supreme Court Justices owned slaves.  They determined that the African prisoners on the slave ship Amistad had every right to kill their guards.  The US Supreme Court in The Amistad 40 US 518, at page 558 determined that “Their object was to free themselves from the fetters that bound them, in order that they might return to their kindred and their home. In so doing, they were guilty of no crime,…”
You cannot explain the Amistad decision if you believe in race based slavery.  You can only explain that deceptive Slave Traders bought a large number of Africans and then sold them as if they were slaves.

Most slaves in America were white.  From the indentured servants at the Jamestown settlement, to today’s Fourteenth Amendment citizens, slavery has always existed.  During the reconstruction the southern plantation owners needed laborers.  The Irish system of fosterlean led to the importing of Irish children after the American Civil War.5

Many slaves in America were Irish children sold into bondage and shipped across the ocean to work here until emancipated. This could only happen in a free country. They would have died in Ireland of starvation during the potato famine, or the workhouses of Ireland.

White slavery

Instead of explaining that all races shared in the horrors of slavery — which would bring us together, the fake news industry wants to agitate and divide.
These same people openly embrace Muslims where slavery flourishes as an important part of their culture. Yet not one peep from the fake news industry.
And they also ignore that the 1840 U.S. Census proves that 29% of free blacks owned slaves. Yet U.S. never had more than 1½% of whites owning slaves.
The very meaning of the word slave refers to white slaves.
There are 167 countries today that have slavery.
Here is a 37 minute video on slavery that every student should watch.
And don’t miss my essay on Slavery.

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.

— George Orwell



Before we study allegiance slavery, we should look at feudal serfdom. Allegiance slavery is an extension of the feudal system required by attorneys. The original American colonies were feudal land grants from English lords, who still own the mineral rights to their land, which is why you pay excise tax.

Example: the Carolina Charter required rental payment from those who reside on the land. Carolina Charter of 1663:

YIELDlNG AND PAYING yearly, to us, our heirs and Successors, for the same, the yearly Rent of Twenty Marks of Lawful money of England, at the Feast of All Saints, yearly, forever, The First payment thereof to begin and be made on the Feast of All Saints which shall be in the year of Our Lord One thousand six hundred Sixty and five; AND also, the fourth part of all Gold and Silver Ore which, with the limits aforesaid, shall, from time to time, happen to be found.”

And, No, this did not change when they wrote their own Constitution:

And provided further, that nothing herein contained shall affect the titles or possessions of individuals holding or claiming under the laws heretofore in force, or grants heretofore made by the late King George II, or his predecessors, or the late lords proprietors, or any of them.” Declaration of Rights 1776, North Carolina Constitution.

And, No, this did not change after the Revolutionary War:

But this State had no title to the territory prior to the title of the King of Great Britain and his subjects, nor did it ever claim as lord paramount to them. This State was not the original grantor to them, nor did they ever hold by any kind of tenure under the State, or owe it any allegiance or other duties to which an escheat is annexed. How then can it be said that the lands in this case naturally result back by a kind of reversion to this State, to a source from whence it never issued, and from tenants who never held under it?” MARSHALL v. LOVELESS, 1 N.C. 412 (1801), 2 S.A. 70.



Applying for a passport presumes an oath of Allegiance.  Title 22 US Code  section 6-212:

“No passport shall be granted or issued to or verified for any other persons than those owing allegiance, whether citizens or not, to the United States”

Allegiance is required by Homeland Security in their Title 8, Code of Federal Regulations, section 337  as a commitment
“… I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God”

A passport application legally makes one subject to indefinite “work of national importance.”  Is there a limit to this “work of national importance”, or is it an oath to perform unlimited hours of perpetual slavery?  Now go to a Law Dictionary and lookup Villenage. “A feudal tenure whereby the tenant was bound to do all such services as the lord commanded”  Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum.

Involuntary servitude is prohibited by the 13th Amendment.  Voluntary servitude is entirely Constitutional.  They are setting you up for slavery.  How harsh will be this “work of national importance” that you agreed to perform for 24 hours a day for the rest of your life?

Even Compton’s dictionary says that statute labor is often indistinguishable from slavery.

RYOT TENURE — “the worst of all systems”


Black’s Law Dictionary Fourth Edition was the last time they allowed you to see this definition.
That’s right.  “The worst of all systems” is a place where government sets the property tax and forces you to do the work and pay the rent/tax.

Patrick Henry, March 28, 1775 urged others to choose between safety or liberty.  “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased by the price of chains and slavery?… I know not what course others may take, but as for me give me liberty or give me death
The words “secure” and “security,” when used in the federal Constitution, are only used in the context of protecting the people from their own government.

As you can see, Patrick Henry equated submission to government to be slavery.  How about you?


In the Bible, Onesimus was a Christian slave.  His Christian duty was to return to his owner.

Muslims always have Christian slaves.


The Vatican’s 1452 Doctrine of Discovery required explorers who discover new lands “… to capture, vanquish and subdue the Sarccens, pagans and other enemies of Christ to take all their possessions and property and to put them into perpetual slavery.”

Georgetown University was founded in 1789 by John Carroll, on land predestined to be become part of Washington DC.  Perhaps he had an ulterior agenda, along with his wealthy Catholic neighbors.  According to Chapter 17 of historian Dan Goodwin’s book, the Carroll family motto on their coat of arms was changed during this time to “Liberty in all Things” to infer their liberty to kill Protestants.  The Maryland State song still sings of Carroll’s sacred trust, to rhyme with “Thy beaming sword shall never rust.”

Does this “liberty in all things” mean they can have their way with us and our property rights?



Once you confess that you cannot manage your own affairs, guess what?  You surrendered.

ATTORNEYS ARE NOT LAWYERS.  An attorney is one who entraps slaves for his master.  An attorney has the duty to turn your allegiance over to his lord.  The word attorney comes from the word “attornment” which means to twist (no surprise here) or to turn over.  This term referred to the transfer of feudal land where the attorney is hired to make sure that all serfs turn over to the new owner with the sale, such that none were freed.  This is the same today.  Again: Ownership of slaves remains with us today.  You have already been turned over to the new owners of the federal government.
Oxford English Dictionary 1999, ATTORN: “Turn over to another; transfer, assign… Transfer one’s tenancy or… homage or allegiance to another; formally acknowledge such transfer.”

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary: ATTORNMENT:

The act of a feudatory, vassal or tenant, by which he consents, upon the alienation of an estate, to receive a new lord or superior, and transfers to him his homage and service.”

You now have a country that is only 4% of the world’s population but has 25% of the world’s prisoners, 70% of the world’s lawyers and 94% of the world’s lawsuits. Spot the trend.  Get used to it.

When the U.S. defaults on the national debt, you will be held to pay the debt that your representatives incurred in your name.

5.  In my book The History of Family Rights, I showed how America’s foster system originated from the Irish custom of hiring their children away.  Here is a definition from Black’s Law Dictionary.


In Black’s Law Dictionary, first edition of 1891, there is no mention of government appointed parents.  Fostering was an ancient custom in Ireland.
There were only two other mentions of Foster children in Black’s first edition: Fosterlean, “the remuneration fixed for the rearing of a foster child” and a Latin term for “A child which one has nursed.”


This showed up in the definition of Father in Black’s Law Dictionary Fourth Edition in 1968.  For the first time, something other than an Ancient Irish Custom become associated with the term Foster.  But this time, it was for government children.

For the first time in the history of your “Christian” civilization, there was a (government imposed child support) fine “to support … children likely to become public charges.”

Whereas the “pure religion” (James 1:27) requires us to privately support widows and orphans.
